Postal Services in SE1 have been poor for years, at least the 12 years I have lived here....the strike has just emphasised that. I found a whole sack of mail left in the looby of the building I live in 1 day....obviously the postman couldn't be bothered to do anything with it. I took it back to Mandela Way
and was almost abused for complaining about what had happened. Between missing credit cards, lost cd/dvd's, and all sorts of other things which seem to go "missing" I have arranged for most of my post to come to me at work these days. And the reason for all this....working practices at Royal Mail being brought into line with what the rest of us have to live with.
